    Please see the attached list of the vendors that had booths with us in St. Cloud this year.  When considering who to do business with, please consider doing business with vendors who are associate members of Allied Charities of Minnesota.  It is good for business to do business with companies that support us and our missions. 2014 Exhibitors w boothnumbers 12122014.pdf

    GCB Proposed Legislation attached. yearendletter12312014.pdf ACM has raised issues with Sections 1, 4 and 18.  In section 1 we believe that charities need to control what goes on in charitable gaming, not for profit enterprises.  We are not necessarily against a provision that would allow a charity to conduct bar bingo without conducting paper pull tabs if the charity that is currently in the establishment with paper pull tabs agrees to the change, but that would be as far as we are willing to go.  In section 4 we are against the doubling of our regulatory fee.  Much work needs to be done to better understand all of the GCB revenue streams (fees, licenses, manufacturers, distributors) and their current expenses.  In section 18 the House and Senate passed our bill with the $2000 e gaming deposit limit and we ask that to be the number (it is back in our 2015 legislation as $2000). Please advise of any other issues that you might have after reviewing the document.

    Schedule C 2013 for ACM a.xlsx

    Link is to the excel file that lists all donations made by us in 2013 by license number.

    I decided against trying to cull donations for your charity.  The idea behind this report is to help others not familiar with what we do (elected officials and community members), see what donations we made that did not directly benefit our organizations. It will be up to each of you to decide if you want to delete any donations before printing your list and getting it distributed to elected officials and  community members.

    As I mentioned in my year end letter, it was a humbling experience to review each of these donations and see what good work that we do in our state and local communities. We have got to get better at talking about what we do without becoming boastful. For my master list I did cull those donations that I thought benefited us directly and will be printing a total organization donation list that will be presented to elected state officials to help them better understand the state wide impact of the work that we do. The list that I have put together has over 38,000 donations for over $43 million.
